3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours to a really hazy chestnut colored body with a thin white head. Aromas of slightly tart wheat and juniper berries with some nice beechwood smoke. The flavor has a moderate sour mash component (but it really isn’t "sour") with a significant wheat component and light juniper berry. It is as though this is a sahti, but still German in its purity requirement. The palate is smooth and easy drinking with a velvety texture and light tartness. I quite enjoyed this unique beer.
Bottle thanks to deyholla. Slightly hazy deep amber pour with a small head. Mellow smoked malt. Some tea accents, shag tobacco. Light fruity esters. Well balanced flavor. Lightly tart with some meaty smoke. Gentle mineral. Light body, soft carb. deyholla (12191) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear amber (with some sediment with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of wheat with a touch of smoke and alight tartness underlying. Flavor has a combination of light wheat, light tart fruits and a hint of smoke. PhillyBeer2112 (2894) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2017
This is OK, but definitely unique, and fairly primitive, though I’m not sure on the freshness of my bottle. Low carbonation, no head. Hazy tea color. Stale seeming malts, lightly smoked, lightly soured, little apparent hopping. A bit grainy, a little vinous in the nose. DandyWolfFloyd (1212) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2016

Appearance - the body is pale yellow, with abundant nucleation. The head is white and 1 1/4" and settles slowly.

Draught. This is a nice smoked ale with lots of nuance. Good for when you want a drink to contemplate and unpack.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange, medium kinda fizzy off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is paper smoke, wheat, dust. Flavor is extremly lightly tart, light sweet, minimal bitterness, hints of smoke, lemon, wheat. Medium body. Not too exciting. KansaiBeerLvrs (5362) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2015
Part of a 10 euro, 6 beer blind tasting set at Trois 8’s biergarten event in Paris. 100% smoked wheat used by this German gypsy brewer. It pours golden with an off-white head. The aroma is of honeyed smoked wheat, it’s got a lovely soft body with flavors of tangy wheat, smoke & honey. Elegant. JulienHuxley (5933) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2015
500 ml bottle. Clear amber-gold pour with very light haze. Aroma is wheaty, light smokiness, campfire smoke. Taste is lightly tart, very mild smokiness, bready wheaty notes, quite lactic, strange but oddly appealing. Palate is light bodied with thin carbonation, silky. Nice stuff.

Draft at Brasserie V in Madison. Just a hint of haze. Light amber pour with h a slight white head. Low carbonation. Low level of tartness and a low level of smoke. Mild in all regards. Biggest feature is the bitterness on the backend.
